Each Spring, typically at the beginning of May, the department faculty, students and alumni are invited to Happy Hour at McGonigel's Mucky Duck. If the weather is nice, the gathering is taken outside to the back deck. In the past the Mucky Duck has provided a generous, and free, happy hour buffet.
We have a great time with over 100 faculty, alumni, staff, students and friends of the department showing up each year. If you have not attended in the past, you should give it a try this year. The Mucky Duck is an Irish pub where the whole family is welcome. Photographs from past happy hour get-togethers are available at the department photo gallery.
Want to see what our students are doing? You are also welcome to join us for Student Research Day, an annual event of talks and poster presentations run by the students that takes place on campus the morning before the happy hour.
This year the Annual Alumni-Faculty-Student Happy Hour will again be on the back patio of McGonigal's Mucky Duck, located at 2425 Norfolk in Houston. All are invited. The Happy Hour will precede the new Student Research Day and Industry Open House to which all alumni are also invited. See the Research Day link for the date, times and more information. Last year's event had 200 attendees, we hope you will join us this year.
